Friends and fellow officers in the United States Army prior to 1861, the fate of Civil War made them foes on the battlefield at Gettysburg. Confederate Brig. Gen. Lewis A. Armistead and Union Maj. Gen. Winfield S. Hancock were both wounded in Longstreet's assault (Pickett's Charge), July 3, 1863.

Here at the Union Army 11th Corps Field Hospital (George Spangler Farm), Armistead died of his wounds on July 5, 1863. Northwest of this marker is the site of the Granite School House, a Union field hospital, where Hancock was initially treated for his wounds. Hancock survived the war, and became a well-known military, political, and civic leader. He died on active military duty at Governor's Island, New York, February 9, 1886.
